So last weekend Jesuit High School holds its annual athletic banquet fund-raiser thingamabob. Up for auction:
Dinner with Dallas Cowboys head coach Wade Phillips, which went for a cool $8,500.
So how much do you think someone bid on a meal with broadcasters Brad Sham, Babe Laufenberg and legendary NFL voice Pat Summerall ... ?
Would you believe $9,000?.
Proves two things:
1. Wade gets no respect in this town.
2. There is a ton a disposable income at Jesuit.
